Got it!  
I got it! I got it!

My long term Earth POV . I need a news reporter. He, she. or it will be brash, pushy, aggressive, and obnoxious. Hehehehehe! Now I need a name . . .

Good idea.
When you make it a him, than let him try to hit on Q (just for professional reasons). Much to the the displeasure of Garit, Xen, and Old Wulf. Maybe Q feels flattered and forbids interference. (No Garit, no duels. No Dad, no beheading. No Xen, no rabbits or goats.)

Or when you make it a her, she can try to ensnare Xen. With similar reactions from Rael.

Of course his intensions and basic lack of interest will be completely obvious to her.

Garit's etc. reactions could be fun.

In chapter five, just after Mantigo's first bit.

Napoleon Zambrano bounced on his heels in frustration. I should be there. Dammit, I'm a better reporter than Helen . . . He shut down the internal whine and listened to the President.

"I have instructed the Head of the IBI to request that the gate to this Embassy World be opened to our gate compound in Asia. We have, perhaps, a week until it happens."

The Congressmen grumbled, en masse, but didn't actually interrupt.

A week? Napoleon was grinning as he turned to the Chief. "As it happens, I've kept my Gate Security Clearance up to date. Shall I start packing?"

Use a double surname. Sounds more pompous.

Maybe Q likes to be courted, even if she knows that it is completely fake.
Maybe she wants to make Garit jealous and tease Xen at the same time.

In a later chapter you could mention that Helen tries to muscle into embassy too. Trying to ensnare Xen, and failing miserably (Raels intervention)

"Nappy Zam Brainless is looking for you."

"Shut up, Xen."

"He just want an in." Garit looked stubborn.

"I noticed that. He's still good looking and a good dancer. Might even be better than, you . . . if I had the faintest idea whether you could dance at all."

"Err . . . didn't I ever . . . "

"If you did, it clearly didn't stand out in either of our minds." She walked out the door.

Garit looked at Xen. "Didn't I ever get roped in for one of those mercy dances with your little sister?"

"No . . . I think you were always pretty booked up." Xen stared at the office door.

"Can't you turn him into a purple bunny rabbit? Or was that one of Uncle Rufi's exaggerations?"


"No what?"

"I can't turn him into a purple bunny . . . without getting into a ton of trouble. However, Q is perfectly capable of doing it herself."

like chocolate silk for my eyeballs. Katja Hayden. That's pretty unique.
